Musgrove started out the season hot but cratered in May, pitching to an 8.10 ERA in the month. His overall numbers (4.44 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) won't blow you away, but Musgrove saw major velocity gains on his fastball and cutter over the second half of the season. Wins will always be an issue but if he can continue to build on his velocity increases, he could find his way into being a back-end starter for your fantasy team.

Joe Musgrove (shoulder) ‘feels better now than he did in March’

Joe Musgrove (shoulder) threw a five inning simulated game on Friday. He “feels better now than he did in March.”

Fantasy Impact

Musgrove was dealing with a pinched nerve in his right shoulder in March. The delay of the regular season has helped him fully recover from that injury. The 27-year-old surrendered seven earned runs in his last Grapefruit League outing. Musgrove figures be a key part of the Pirates’ rotation and offers fantasy appeal as a late-round flyer in standard leagues. He owned a 4.44 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and a 157:39 K:BB across 31 starts in 2019.
